If you’ve been to the V&A Waterfront lately you probably would have seen the Pop Shop, inspired by Design Indaba- a little shop that offers only the most fantastic of local creative wares. Unfortunately, like all good things- it’s run of awesome has to come to an end.
However there is no need to despair because even though Pop Shop, inspired by Design Indaba, will no longer be at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, you will still be able to find your favourite all-South African designer products at Design Indaba’s online shop.
After a rather successful two month pop-up stint, Pop Shop will be relocating to new, currently secret, pastures. So make sure that you pay them a visit before 9pm on Wednesday 31 August 2011, their last day of trading, for great designer products, some of which will be available at super discounted prices.
Some of the amazing local design products at Pop Shop include the gorgeous ceramics of Sootcookie and Imiso Ceramics, fashion from Spilt Milk, Take Care Clothing, bluecollarwhitecollar and Doreen Southwood and of course Recreate’s upcycled furniture or Mielie’s colourfully covetable handbags. And that’s just naming a few!

Pop Shop is at shop 7236 at the V&A Waterfront, easily accessible from the main entrance.
Pop Shop is open from 9am to 9pm daily.
